The exhibition presents extraordinary “brutalist” projects, both materialized buildings and project proposals, in Prague between 1960 and 1980. In light of ever increasing demolitions, the exhibition encourages the public to accept and appreciate these buildings and their architectural qualities, which may not be obvious at first sight, as they are usually labelled “communist” architecture. The exhibition will help the public learn about brutalist architecture and inspire visitors to actively protect brutalist buildings.
